Oh. Classic, how marvellous. That last bit in particular gave me a lump in my throat.

You must be so proud. Of him, and of you and him.

Thanks folks.

Sooooo - The plan was to drive Dan to the ceremony and listen to the Eagles game (shuddup - I just had to) in the car while they did their whatever.
Dan starts getting nervous and wants me to go in with him... OK. We go in and the TKE pres looks at me in my jeans and sweatshirt ... all WTF-ish and then tells me that they want to induct ME as well. Hahahahahahaha.... I didn't even shave. They were all in collared shirts & ties and all. "Sure, I'd be honored." I replied.
So we both went in, did the whole 2+ hour ceremony and I'm now a fratter too!
Dan and I are both struggling to remember the secret password, handshake and all that shit. Too funny. I'm like the least frat type person in the world, but they are doing a good thing and I'm happy to be a part of it. Dan is beside himself. I'm happy for him.

I hope you didn't do this at Widener, in 1977/1978. TKE was the dick football frat then. I'd rather pledge Lamda Lamda Lamda or Delta Tau Chi :-P

Thanks limey & xoB.

Yes Spexx, It was at Widener. I am aware of what it WAS.
This is a group of young men who are restarting the fraternity in the historical context of what a fraternity SHOULD be. A brotherhood of young men who FIRST & FOREMOST want to give back to the community & support each other. I will wholeheartedly support them and their efforts. Their first endeavor raised $4000 for MADD. As an adult adviser, I will do what I can to keep them focused in that direction as well. Their "hazing" is basically creating & organizing a community event to support and benefit those in need. There are no paddles, no beatings etc etc...


Thanks for your positive input though, nice to know some things/people never change.

That ^^^ is a great example of one of the main reasons I haven't been around.
Perhaps, its better that I stay away.

Wait, whoa! No, not better! Isn't there an 'ignore' button here? Better that than leaving. If you just find someone too abrasive, that is.

I think classic would prefer a "wish into the cornfield" button in some cases.

Spexx's original comment didn't seem that bad to me. Seemed more like a good humored poke than a nasty jibe.

Given it's completely understandable that classic might be very sensitive around this topic, though, perhaps a 'sorry mate, didn't mean it like that' would have been more in order than 'get a sense of humour'.

Just my tuppenorth.

Classic, I'm sure this present group of people are an outstanding bunch, and I'm glad that they are good to you and your son. My experience back in the day was different. Tri Lambs is the frat from Revenge of the Nerds, and Delta House is from Animal House.
